Product Description

Sony Ericsson W980i Walkman phone is designed to allow you to listen to music as it should be heard. Clear stereo enables the music to sound like the original recording. Clear bass delivers distortion free sound even at higher volumes. These features combine with the premium headphones, the Stereo Portable Handsfree HPM-77, to deliver an incredible clear audio experience and music that sounds as true as possible to the original recording. The W980i Walkman phone has a built-in FM transmitter, which allows you to send whatever’s playing on your phone to other devices with a built-in FM radio receiver. This gives you the ability to share your music with all those around you, whether through a friend’s hi-fi or your car stereo. Quality music is made for sharing with the W980i. Unplug your headset, sit back and let the music flow through the integrated stereo speakers for all to enjoy. Select a track from the extensive music library – the W980 lets you store up to 8000 songs – or tune in to your favorite radio station and listen out loud. No need to plug in an FM Receiver (which is usually built-in to the handsfree kit), since this is on-board with the W980i. Download new music instantly on the go with PlayNow arena, giving instant access to over 5 million tracks to maximize your music collection. The W980’s TrackID feature, which can identify any track that you just can’t put a name to, will be fully integrated into PlayNow arena. This makes the W980i a genuine gateway to great music, as you can download the track instantly once it has been identified. You can tailor the W980i’s Walkman player to the music that you’re listening to. This latest Walkman phone provides a choice of eight equalizer presets, each of which contains a distinct profile that is suitable to a range of music. So whether you’re listening to jazz, pop or heavy metal, you’ve can always choose the best sound for the song.

I got the W980 after my trusty W810i bit the dust. And why did it die? Because Sony insists on using their crappy 12-copper pin input/output/power port. After 2 years of being in a pocket, this port gets tarnished and requires daily cleaning. Or in my case the copper pin fell off and I could no longer charge my phone! But at least Sony made these copper pins much Larger in the W980. Cleaning these suckers should be a breeze! The W980 is great for those like me who need both a phone and a mp3 player. I don't need it for extensive texting or web browsing. And the fixed 8GB memory (no SD card here) is plenty since I don't watch videos on a 2-inch screen or need to store my entire collection of mp3s. It sounds/looks great and is a bit expensive for what you get. No new ground being broken here (looks like they saved that for the xperion).

I bought this phone on a whim. I normally like to go and look at a phone before I buy. But this time I relied entirely on other peoples comments and online research. I'm NOT disappointed! Overall the phone looks good. It has very simple clean lines and appearance. If you text...the buttons are small...but spread apart, so they're still seemingly user friendly if you have big thumbs like me. There's nothing in the way of a "normal" ringtone so you'll have to buy one or something. Navigating through the menus can be tricky. Items aren't always where you might expect to find them, but the book was helpful for me in that regard. The software can be slow at times. it could use the cellphone equivalent to "more RAM." The battery seems great. I've sent hundreds of texts, listened to hours of music, and spent a couple hours talking all on one charge. with moderate use i average a charging every 3 days or so. I had some compatibility issues with the ATT network, I "Googled" the problem and was directed to the Sony Ericsson site where they fixed the phone via text message in less than 30 seconds! amazing if you ask me. It comes with everything you need to put your favorite music into it. Which sounds excellent with the headphones sony provides. I like being able to play all my music without opening the phone. everything can be done on outer display(you can lock the outer display so music doesn't start playing randomly from your pocket) The screen, and photo's you take and look at on it, is crystal clear and sharp. the camera takes very good photos for a cell phone. better than my digital camera(which i admit is a little outdated) bottom line...Is it worth the money?? to ME...YES! It's up to you how much value you place on a music playing camera that you can call your friends on. It's not the BEST at any one of those...but it does them all VERY well in a single devise.

the W980 is well made and sounds excellent - BUT:
while listening better dont move, since interference may spoil your listening significantly, so for use on a train or in car skip it for a non-mobile phone mp3 player.
you will be become screaming mad trying to organize your music/audiobooks on it. the media manager pro software is absurdly slow (no alternative here) and documentation of common issues (ie how to make a playlist for the w980 on the pc, or how treat audiobooks) is nonexistent.
so it is a mixed bag this top walkman phone.

Overall gud product from Sony. Audio quality is superb, easy to use interface. Gud buy considering the 8gb flash memory. The only glitch is you might not like the look when flipopen for the first time.....for the fone that boasts of so much features, and a clean crisper outside,when you flip open the phone it somehow doesnt compliments the look.

Still wud recommend it as a gud buy for the value n the features.
